Healthy, with no fin rot!

Other than that, I don't care :)

I've never owned a betta, but I personally love VTs. I was at PetsMart today and saw the prettiest blue Cambodian VT. However, I also like the Dalmatian pattern.

My pets:
-Macy, 1 year old F calico cat
-Pumpkin, 7 year old M brown tabby cat
-Hopefully a betta soon!
-Mr. Peach, comet goldfish, passed on 4/28/11

i love them all...Each of them have different little personalities. I am a big fan of veil tails and double tails though...I think they are really pretty.When veiltails get older their fins get realllly long..Atleast my orange guys has...theyre long and flowy now.. (they're all really pretty though haha)

I love the crosses of a crown tail and a halfmoon/superdelta so they become supersuns! So comb tail. And yellow spotted. I would be hard pressed not to buy that fish.

I have a major huge soft spot for VTs and CTs.

I love all colours and tails though as long as they're healthy (I will occasionally rescue an ill betta, but it hasn't happened for awhile). My all time favourite colour combo is green/turquoise marble, with or without dragon scales and any tailtype and my favourite solids are blue, white, pastel, yellow, bright red, orange, any metallics, marbles of any colour, grizzles ... and if they existed, purple.

@Sashimi- LOL!

Ok, my first breeding pair has been picked! Chard's blue marble line! They are halfmoons. It is cute, they start out with full blue color, and lose it with age, making random and beautiful marbling. As well, they have that metallic shimmer that Chard is famous for! These guys aren't tail biters! :D

My next pair will probably be CTs. I will try and get some really amazing colors for you guys. Large rays, extreme tail definition, and some kind of wild color.

I am not sure if I want to get into DTs since their tails are semi-random, and VTs don't sell that well... I may try deltas/super deltas, though, and I will definitely get into HMPKs!

So, keep an eye out for me! I will breed HM/HMPK & CT most definitely.

My first spawn will be around August with the blue marble HMs, I will post up a spawn log then. I am not expecting too much, but I promise you guys the spawn will be pretty dirt cheap! I'm not looking into profit, just to break some-what even. So depending on spawn size, probably $5-ish for females, $8-ish for males. (If for some reason I get 50-some babies the first time with a good male ratio, I will sell cheaper!)

If you're interested, just keep an eye out for my spawn log under the breeding section in August. ^^

Kaida- CT Female 2.5 Gal.
Julep- HMPK Male 2.5 Gal.
Fandango-HM Male 10 Gal.

Good luck with your spawn. I would love to breed bettas, but I don't think my family would agree... :(

I love veiltails. They look so elegant with those long flowing fins. I like black and orange bettas, but Im obsessed with Mustard Gas and white!

Halfmoons in shades of blue or green with a butterfly and/ or marble pattern are my favorites.
